Penn State Downtown Theatre
Woskob Family Gallery
146 S. Allen St., State College

Free and open to the public; reservations required

Urban Bush Women artists will combine conversation, guided movement explorations, and performance highlights from Hair & Other Stories, its dance theatre piece about how color, length, and varying degrees of curl affect definitions of “good hair” and “bad hair” within and outside of the African-American community.

The two-hour event will also include a gallery talk on the concurrent exhibition Race and Revolution: Still Separate—Still Unequal, which explores ongoing racial and economic disparity in the U.S. public school system.

The event is best for participants ages 10 and older. Children must be accompanied by adults. The number of participants is limited to forty. For reservations, contact Medora Ebersole, education and community programs manager, at mde13@psu.edu, and use the subject line: Hair Party.
